ROMEO and JULIET
Are you dreamers and romantics? Or are you literature lovers?
Dear newlyweds, the city of Romeo and Juliet, whose story was written by Shakespeare, is waiting for you to give a background to your most awaited day, your “I do day”.
Verona, fortified city in Veneto, has in it a thousand faces representing different historical times that have occurred and have made her the Queen which is now.
Rare beauty and charming city, a World Heritage Site by UNESCO for its urban structure and its architecture, this Italian city talks about history, culture and prestige.
If you choose the city cradled by the waters of the river Adige, there are various valuable palaces where you exchange your promises. One above all, Juliet’s medieval home, where the famous balcony stands, a witness of thoughts of the two lovers about their families and of the promise of eternal love. The halls are decorated with frescoes, furniture of the XVI-XVII century and Renaissance ceramics. These places welcome you and your guests for a civil ceremony.
Then there is the Palazzo della Ragione, a noble building of the old Town Hall in Verona, located between Piazza delle Erbe and Piazza dei Signori. The most luxurious and fully decorated room, the Chapel of Notaries, on the main floor of the Tower of the Masseria, welcomes those who prefer an intimate ceremony that smells of art.
